KIA/Robochamps car models RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know if the KIA MSRS models for the RoboChamps Urban Challenge 2008 are available from somewhere? Unfortunately the website (www.robochamps.com) is long gone and I would like to do some experiments with car-like robots.

  • Actually, we have the source for all of the RoboChamps environments. However, there are changes required to run under the final release of RDS 2008 and we also need a distribution mechanism. We do not want to include these environments in the RDS package itself because they are too big and the package is already the size of a CD.

    So a slightly long-winded answer is that we plan to release the RoboChamps environments, but probably not until after the next release of RDS and they will be separate downloads.

    (I'm not from MRDS product team but since I have recently communicated regarding this package with the Program manager I'll answer you)
    I'm sorry this package is no longer supported/offered by the MRDS product team.
    KIA Urban challenege package was developed on top of MRDS 2008 CTP July which is also no longer available as it was a interim release. Furthermore there is no plans to migrate the KIA Urban challenge package to the MRDS 2008/MRDS 2008 R2.
